Hayate no Gotoku!! 2nd Season – 09
In every series there are always episodes that feature a side character, this is one of them. But since Hayate no Gotoku has such a vast selection of characters this episode features two of them: Sister Sonia and Yukiji. So for me I like one and the other was really meh that I started to loose interest towards the end. Anyway the first half was Sister Sonia seeing Wataru to confirm her feelings for him. This I remember clearly from the manga as it was a short story that ended amusinly. It also features Saki because I like my maids.
For a sister, Sister Sonia sure can go to some lengths to accomplish something as well as dish out the punishment, and that’s what I loved about this short story. That bizarre extremes that this series can go but making it seemingly normal. And with the commentary from Ten no Koe about Sister Sonia x Wataru is illegal was pure gold. Also I love how Saki starts feeling jealous over how well Sister Sonia and Wataru were getting along. Gotta love how butlers and maids are so dedicated to their master’s well being and affairs.
The other half was about Yukiji trying to find a boyfriend. This was a real let down and it was the same when I read this part in the manga. I think it’s that Yukiji is too much of a flat character at the moment given that majority of the time she is always on about money and booze. Thus this 2nd half only managed to drag on and on with very little laughter to be had, except when Maria had her moments of thinking about having a boyfriend. Still this is just filler material to use even if it was part of the manga until we get to the really good stuf. And from the looks of things it’s starting next episode.
